6:00 pm
valdez has been around a while. and gets a base hit here. on two-strike count. sergio romo, remember the driving rain in san francisco. game seven. this is matt holiday. and marco scutaro looking up into that rain. scutaro, mvp. of the championship series. that moment, the giant won the national league pennant. a celebration began on a very, very wet field. >> mike: it was surreal as to how wet it was. rain was coming down. and it was, matt halladay, who i thought had a play to turn the whole series around when he took out marco scutaro at second. we thought at the time, it is his season with a knee injury,
6:01 pm
sprained his knee. he stayed in and stayed in the series. >> jon: 14 hits and 28 at-bats. >> mike: and a pop-up from holiday to scutaro. >> jon: more than just a little irony. rockies spent jim wright, pitching coach out to the mound. now game five in cincinnati, sergio romo. and scott rolland, down on strikes. that was his 35th pitch. he worked hard to get through that one. >> mike: i thought the body block that romo laid on it, i never saw that, who was that? someone came around the pile and got smoked. >> jon: we'll have to find out who was down with an injury all through the winter.
6:02 pm
>> mike: you smoke your teammate in celebration. oh, well, it was all good. >> jon: quiroz. >> mike: i never saw that before. or at least never noticed it. >> jon: probably add couple of good bruises as souvenirs in that post season. now walt weiss will go out, danny rosenbaum, left-hander, and this is the spot where he would bring in a left-hander. two-run lead in the ninth inning.
6:03 pm
>> mike: he is a right-hander -- >> jon: and rosey in a spot where he would use a left-hander. hot hitter brandon belt can coming you up. we'll be right back. for your first day?
6:04 pm
yeah. ♪ dad: you'll be fine, ok? girl: ok. dad: you look so pretty. ♪ i'm overprotective. that's why i got a subaru. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. >> jon: last of the ninth inning. giants fans still hanging in there. cactus league. sunday, st. patrick's day, 2013.
6:05 pm
she and the little one, they've got their rally caps on. >> mike: oh, yeah, they are feeling it here on st. patrick's day. got to feel lucky on st. patrick's day. >> jon: there is dan rosenbaum. >> mike: having a good solid spring. no strikeouts. >> jon: .250 against him. and two men on, nobody out. just off the outside. >> mike: rosenbaum, the way it works, if you bring a guy over, he has to make your team. if you don't include him on your roster, you have to offer him back to his previous team. but the rockies, they are thinking this guy is legit, thinking he will be part of the
6:06 pm
club. they like him. >> jon: a lot of base runners. 14 hits and received four walks. but only five runs. 2-1. keeping the ball down. 3 hits for the giants today and 14 at-bats with runners in scoring position. brandon belt has had two hits, single leading off the fourth and rbi double with two down. in the fifth, walked these last time. and the outside, and that's -- belt argued with him about a call like that in the first inning and again here in the ninth inning. >> mike: see how wide they took the target and see how wide they catch the call. if it caught the corner, it wasn't very big. adam schwartz strike zone, he has it on both sides of the plate, at the knees. >> jon: going out there again.
6:07 pm
up the middle, base hit. valdez will score. going around to third, brandon belt, has had disagreements with the plate umpire today but also had three hits and two rbis. been on base four straight times. and the possible time is now third base with nobody on. >> mike: they set up outside and put it pretty much where they want to on the outside corner. brandon belt, they went out there once and got the strike and good out there again. look it away. out the middle. two strikes away. >> jon: cole gallespie, possible winning run. nobody out. rosenbaum and breaking ball for
6:08 pm
the strike. i think it was interesting the way you describe the whole thing because belt was putting it back together. about what pitch you would be likely to throw based on what it had seen and what the umpire was giving and he was absolutely right. one ball one strike. to gallespie. rockies had more activity. now the giant have activity in the bullpen. >> mike: so apparently, if they tie, we will have extra innings. which they haven't had this spring. nine innings has generally been the limit. one time in the spring, playing three straight times, there's the dirt on the inside. nice save there, by gustvo
6:09 pm
molina, the catcher. quiroz is the runner, and he is not very fast. gillespie has gone cold with the bat here lately. 2-2. bouncing it over to the rockies dugout. out on deck for the giants, the pitcher due next is adam duvall, oh, no, sorry, that's ryan lawless. i got a little excited. because duvall has been very impressive. very powerful guy. played at san jose last year. >> mike: had an rbi yesterday, including a home run. >> jon: 3-2. that one is hit deep into left center field. way back there is clearry.
6:10 pm
and it's a home run. cole gillespie got one into the jet stream and right out of the yard for a game-ending home run. so quir o oz and belt score ahead of him and gillespie tags the plate. final score, 9-7 giant. four-run, ninth inning. and cole gillespie trying to win a spot on this club. >> mike: well, that's how you put an impression in your manager's mind, get a walk-off home run. high hanger right at the belt. and gillespie knew as soon as he hit it. goes right into a trot. folks, time to go home and that's how you have a happy st. patrick's day. see ya!
6:11 pm
>> jon: and there it was, over the wall. that's no cheapy in this ballpark. so 9-7, giants and the 11,756, sell-out crowd, and they celebrate. a giants come back in the ninth, making sergio romo, the winning pitcher, rosenbaum takes the loss, 9-7, giants. 16 hits for giants. 12 for rockies. and so, giants now, with a lot of reason to celebrate, with a nice win. get a day off tomorrow. >> mike: and second off day. rare second off day in spring training. and today a lot of good things happen. od work day for tim lincecum. made adjustments. starting off high in the zone. and big days for hunter pence and brandon belt. >> jon: tune into comcast

6:17 pm
question? >> i will tell you, it's something very common. we're seeing in the whole world of motorsports. young drivers, i mean, you can be 15 years old and race nascar. i would say you can't hinge it on the driver's age, no way. >> in nascar, the most common reason fora driver to lose control is a stuck throttle. >> a lot of things with the throttle could get hung up and hold it wide open. >> reporter: the sheriff's department say 68-year-old dale wonderjam and marcus johnson were standing near each other in the pit area. april goreham is from a racing family and prior to races, she has been asked to sign a waiver in the pit area. >> to be in the pit area itself, you have to sign a waiver, whatever happens here, the track is not liable for.
